Phantasmagorias. Pulcinella’s life, death and miracles
A musical theater show inspired by Tiepolo’s works

“Phantasmagorias. Life, death and miracles of Pulcinella” is a musical theater show freely inspired by Giandomenico Tiepolo’s works that tell the story of Pulcinella, the most famous Neapolitan puppet character. The show is directed by Michele Modesto Casarin, music performed by the Harmonia Prattica Ensemble, La Fenice Theatre Foundation production in collaboration with Pantakin Commedia, Woodstock Teatro.

Venice at the end of the eighteenth century. The renowned, elderly painter Tiepolo is wandering around the city disguised as a ragamuffin theatre director, offering people his most incredible creation: phantasmagoria, a performance of images with his new paintings that are turned to life thanks to optical contraptions, music and “Commedia dell’Arte” actors. They bring to life the fabulous and bizarre life of Pulcinella, narrated through his countless, tragic-comic deaths: how many times does Pulcinella have to die if he is to carry on living?

Location: La Fenice Theater, Venice

Schedule: June 7 -14, 2020

Ticket: up to € 20
